You Tube Videos Don't Play

Post by Jaymann »

Linked videos in posts no longer play. I can go to You Tube if I really want to see them. I use Firefox.

Try using the Invidition extension. It redirects YouTube links to the alternative ad-free, privacy-friendly, Invidio.us interface.
"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

Well I tried it and it didn't work - the play arrow didn't even show up. So I removed it and they started working again. I guess the threat is mightier than the execution.

If you find it's not working try switching to another instance, i.e. click on the Invidition button, then select a different server from the pull-down menu above the 'Audio Mode' and 'Loop Mode' toggles. Or just click on the 'Fastest' button to the right of that pull-down menu, and it should automatically select the fastest instance for you.

Google sometimes bans or throttles Invidious instances, which is why it helps to try using a different instance if you run into problems.
